Typing A Code Into Netflix Brings Up All Its Crime Documentaries

It was revealed when one of the TikTok users shared a ‘Netflix hack’ for crime drama lovers to look for the shows that they hadn’t come across yet. For sure, it’s enervating to scroll through each one of the shows and movies when you can cut out all those you don’t prefer to watch. However, no matter what the category is, there’s a secret code for all of them. Just put it in the search box and everything you wished will be right there to choose from.

The crime drama category is still the most popular genre out of all. Its code is 9875. TikToker Laura Lindsay (@lozlinz) shared a video apprising: “Netflix hacks for all your crime bingers.” She then puts the code 9875 in the search box. Search 9875. Every single crime documentary. Thank me later,” she adds.


We all know how Netflix stands apart when it comes to offering the best binge-watching sessions. It is, by far, the best streaming service with thousands of hours of content. For crime, ‘’Crime Scene: The Vanishing at the Cecil Hotel’ and ‘Serial Killer with Piers Morgan’, etc. are some of the alternatives. If it’s a comedy you’re searching for, ‘The Dictator’ and ‘Johnny English’ are the prominent options. There might be some differences in the UK and US versions.

Mind you, the code is meant to be working on your desktop version of Netflix. However, you’ll notice some of the contents that don’t match with the searched category but are still present there. ‘Friends’ is not a crime series, for sure, but it is still there if you search 9875. The same goes with ‘The Big Bang Theory.’ The thing is Netflix keeps updating all its code with time so it’s possible for a code to stop working after a while. You might see some error messages as well because Netflix changes them once in a while.

So, the crime genre isn’t only the one that has such luxury. There’s a whole list to look for the secret code of your preferred category. We’ve some of them listed for a few genres:
